Joe Slack - Planning Team of YXL Northeast - Joe is in his 9th year of helping plan YXL Northeast.  He is currently the Youth Director of New Covenant Fellowship in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.  Joe is a graduate of Clemson University and loves his Clemson Tigers!  He also earned his Master of Divinity from Erskine Theological Seminary.  Joe has a heart for  challenging Christian students to step up and lead, using their gifts and talents.  He has a real desire to ask the difficult questions to get students thinking about their faith and what that means for their lives.  Joe can be seen leading a lot of our initiative and team-building type activities.  He likes to see students get frustrated because it creates teachable moments in regards to their faith and opportunities to grow in leadership.  Joe is married to his wife of almost 19 years, Nicole.  They have three daughters: Savannah, Alison, & Emmeline. 

 

 

 

Taylor Rollo - Planning Team of YXL Northeast - Taylor is excited about being a part of this ministry for a 4th year. He serves as the associate pastor of Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Blacksburg, VA, where he lives with his wife-of-twelve-years, Erika, and his two boys--Gabriel (7) and Corban (4). Part of his ministry at his church is leading the youth group, which has given him a passion to see youth grow in the Reformed faith, their love of Christ, their love for the Church, and their passion for the lost. He is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary of Atlanta, but his background before seminary was in astrophysics, which he still loves. In his spare time, Taylor enjoys reading scientific journals and theology, writing, and watching Braves baseball.
